Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on Schools Students with Disability (NCCD)

Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) and the Disability Standards for Education 2005 (the Standards), Australian students with a disability must be able to access and participate in education on the same basis as their peers. To ensure this, students with a disability may receive support in the classroom or other areas of schooling by way of adjustments to access education. The support given to students to access the curriculum is based on the professional judgement of teachers, professionals and in consultation with family members.

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) provides information about the number of students with disability in schools and the adjustments they receive. The Australian Education Regulation 2013 requires all schools in Australia to report the data collected for the NCCD to the Australian Government on an annual basis.

The NCCD is a consistent, reliable and systematic way in recording the number of students with disabilities who are receiving adjustments and enables schools and education authorities to better understand the needs of students in how they can be best supported at school.
